Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Breakout Brewing? With the 3200-3230 support level holding strong on the S&P 500, we remain constructive over the intermediate-term as outlined in our 11/3/20 Compass. Considering current market dynamics we see eventual decisive breakouts as the most likely outcome for the major averages, which justifies our positive outlook. At the same time, with the S&P 500, Russell 2000, and Nasdaq 100 climbing 7-12% in just over a week and all three testing logical resistance, we believe there is potential for some near-term backing-and-filling.

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Global Equities Dive, Testing Major Support Global equities have gone from extreme bullish sentiment and an extended market to panic and fear over coronavirus concerns. It is virtually impossible to predict what will happen regarding the virus or how much further markets could sell off as a result. Below we explain our outlook based on what we do know, which has been dampened but is not yet dire. • Indexes Testing Major Support. Major indexes are testing long-term base support and/or support at their respective 200-day MAs. These include the MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-US, EAFE, EM, S&P 500, Nikkei...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Growth Over Value We continue to see coronavirus concerns as helping correct the excess bullish sentiment in the short-term. Additionally, considering the dearth of breakdowns, we continue to believe this is a bull market until proven otherwise and a “buy the dip” strategy remains warranted. • Major Indexes Holding Up Well. As mentioned above, breakdowns in major indexes are hard to come by. EM (MSCI EM), China (MSCI China), Europe (STOXX 600), MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-US, and EAFE have all pulled back to their 50-day MAs, while Japan (TOPIX) appears to be finding support at its 100-day MA. ...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

ACWI Below Our Line In The Sand With the MSCI ACWI (ACWI-US) breaking below our $70 “line in the sand” support level we highlighted last week, we believe additional downside is likely and that the path of least resistance is lower for global equities. Considering the damage done to major indexes around the world, any potential bottom is likely to take months to develop and until we see evidence of this repair process we want to be positioned primarily in Sectors with defensive characteristics. Of course, there will be major countertrend rallies along the way, but for now the trend is lowe...
